It was a bit eerie, one of the suggestions to me.
Why eerie? Because I’ve been looking at the LG G Stylo phone.
1) Better build
2) Compact design
3) 64-bit CPU versus 32-bit
4) Android 5.x versus Android 4.x
5) Stylus versus no stylus
6) Bootloader unlocking versus locked
7) Root access versus none
8) Split-screen multiwindow versus none
9) Laser focus versus optical
10) Seemingly better camera
And also important is the support over at the XDA Developers forum:
Metro PCS rooted (as can be T-Mobile)
I’m still in no position to get a phone. But I held the LG G4 earlier this week and liked it. But that was a 5.5-inch screen, while the LG G Stylo is 5.7 inches.
Same-day update: Sprint is now offering this phone. There are two versions people should be aware of.
Sprint/Boost Mobile: 1GB RAM, 8GBs internal storage, 5MP front and 8MP back camera.
T-Mobile/Metro PCS: 2GBs RAM, 16GBs internal storage, 5MP front and 13MP back camera.
I have no idea why there are two versions to confuse people nor why the Metro PCS one is so inexpensive.
